The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall has introduced Justin Gomlak as the new director of education and community programs for the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
Gomlak will assume the role at the end of June. He previously spent nine years as a dance and theater specialist and arts department chair at The Dalton School, a prestigious private K-12 institution in Manhattan. During his tenure, Gomlak taught 400 students weekly, and he created diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and social emotional learning (SEL) programs school-wide. Prior to teaching at The Dalton School, he spent 15 years as a performer in nine major Broadway productions, including original companies of Seussical the Musical and Shrek the Musical.
At the Van Wezel, Gomlak will develop, implement and manage the education and community outreach curriculums. This includes programs like schooltime performances, professional development workshops and family nights at the theater.
